Celebrating Confirmation

It was a wonderful occasion when we welcomed Bishop Philip Egan, the Bishop of Portsmouth, to Farleigh to confirm 40 of our children. After several weeks of preparation, they were ready to celebrate their Confirmation surrounded by nearly 200 family and friends.

Bishop Philip reminded the candidates that in this age of modern technology, the Holy Spirit was like an app, which would be activated in them through this Sacrament and it would be a source of strength and protection throughout their lives. As he confirmed each candadate he reminded them that they had a chosen a saint who would now be a special part of their spiritual journey.

Afterwards, the children enjoyed a brief reception on the Headmaster's Lawn before setting off for their half-term break.
